Excuse ME! Peter.

What is you problem????

The call to Core text offer the same results as ATSUI!!!
So no instability is introduced!

Leopard and Snow Leopard are OK (it depends on the hardware it will run on: Mac OS X must be younger than the hardware or it won't run on something it does not know). You can either clone your recent installation onto a smaller external disk, connected through FireWire, because this enables the Mac to boot from it, or onto an extra internal disk (when you're using a desk-side computer), or you can try to create a virtual instance of a Mac OS X version in which XeTeX is supported.
	I have and still use some very old hardware and software. But, that is a different matter.
